About us

The idea for PlantSavers was the result of a discussion by three friends during the COVID-19 lockdown, which soon became a reality with a close-knit team of friends, brothers, sisters and mothers(it was her idea!). We want to support plant growers from all over Britain left with millions of plants at risk of going to waste, and get them to UK households who want them.

Our Values

Honesty

We won’t make promises we can’t keep and will admit when we’ve made a mistake.

We will not forget why we started PlantSavers.

Fairness

We will agree fair prices and will always try to buy plants that are likely to go to waste.

We will try and support everyone we can; from those looking for work to those who want support for a charity or good cause.

Sustainability

We will try to to avoid and reduce the negative environmental impact we cause. We commit to being carbon negative(we remove more carbon than we create) and will have no unnecessary product packaging.

We will act responsibly because Growers, Plants and People need us to be a sustainable venture to continue to make an impact.

Our Service

Your selection

We aren’t a normal direct to consumer company. We source plants from nurseries that are most likely to go to waste, responding to their at risk supply. We will rarely, if ever promise the contents of a box, only that they will look great, be worth a lot more than you paid and arrive undamaged.

Delivery

1) If you made your order before Wednesday lunchtime your delivery may be attempted as early as before that weekend (2 working days) and at the latest before the following weekend (7 working days). The longest you will wait for a delivery attempt is 11 working days.

Our delivery practices are as follows:

a) ensure that we call you on the number you provided if you aren’t in.

b) If we can’t reach you, leave your item with a neighbour and you haven’t nominated a safe place we won’t leave your order and will attempt redelivery when we can.

c) To check in with you after the order via a feedback form to ensure your order was received as planned. We will then follow up immediately to correct any delivery issues you have faced.

d) We deliver our orders based on the sequence we receive them as well as the area we’re delivering in. This may mean some people who ordered first will get their plants slightly after those who ordered after them. We do this to reduce our environmental impact as part of our commitment to sustainability which is a core value of our organisation.
